Personal Description:

I am a junior doctor with 14 years experience of tutoring. I graduated in medicine from Imperial College London, having previously obtained my PhD and MPhil in Clinical Biochemistry at University of Cambridge, and an MSc in Immunology at Imperial College. I previously studied Natural Sciences at Cambridge where I obtained my MA.

I have a keen interest in tutoring children and adults of all ages, and I believe with the right tuition and support, anyone can reach their full potential.

Tutoring Experience:

I have experience of tutoring students of various ages from junior school right through to university students and adults. Subjects have included Maths, Chemistry, Biology, Physics and entrance exams.

I also have 10 years experience of coaching students in medical school and Oxbridge interviews and have helped students improve their university UCAS applications.
I have been an interview panel member for Imperial College Medicine admissions for the last 2 years, which has given me a good insight into the requirements for a successful candidate and has further helped me to tutor successfully in this avenue.

In addition to academia, I have also been a piano teacher for 14y.

Credentials:
PhD, MPhil, MSc, MA, BA
A-Level: 4A in Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Maths
AS-Level: A in Statistics
GCSE: 10A* 2A
Piano Grade 8 obtained at age 14

Tutoring Approach:

I am an enthusiastic tutor and I believe that with the right environment and hard work, any student can achieve their full academic potential. It is so important for students to learn to be proactive learners and to be inspired to succeed in their subject. My approach is far more based on supporting and positive reinforcement rather than pressuring the individual. However I do expect students to take a committed interest in their learning. That way I have found that students take responsibility for their own learning, and learn the skill of developing their own interest in a subject and eventually become able to teach themselves in a mature way. Such a skill is far more valuable for long-term learning and success, instead of simply just focusing on the narrow short-term view of upcoming examinations. Learning how to learn is equally as important as learning the material itself.

I have received a lot of positive feedback from my tutees and every student has succeeded far beyond their initial expectations. For example I have previously taken on several students who were at grade B level at GCSE in chemistry but who went on to achieve A* in exams after tutoring.

I have coached many individuals who have later been successful at interview, using mock interview style teaching with detailed focussed feedback and sessions involving working through questions that students are likely to get.
